Today in History: Mickie James becomes a three-time Knockouts Champion


On this day in history:

May 23rd, 2013 | Velvet Sky, despite having suffered a knee injury at the hands of Gail Kim, was determined to be a fighting Knockouts Champion, putting the belt on the line against Mickie James on Impact. Mickie’s babyface facade had been slipping as of late, and she almost shed it completely in this match, taking advantage of Velvet’s injury to win the Knockouts Title for the third time. It wouldn’t be long before she became a full-fledged heel, remaining at the top of the division until she abruptly left Impact Wrestling in September.
